HUBLOT King Power 48 OCEANOGRAPHIC 1000

By TLex HUBLOT are yet to release anything official on their new OCEANOGRAPHIC model. The King Power 48 Oceanographic 1000 Ref. 732.NX.1127.RX has all the hallmarks of a depth gauge.There's the scale in orange running from 05 - 15, which would likely indicate meters and the orange hand / depth indicator.


However I can't see a sensor, unless we are to believe it is there at 2 o'clock cleverly disguised as a chrono pusher, which I am almost certain it is. I have to say though, if I hadn't seen the tell-tale signs on the dial I could easily have believed this to be a diving chrono, but then again the HUB4160 is only a 25 jewel calibre not 36, so it is most likely an auto (I digress).

Apart from this the spec. below offers very little to support my theory otherwise, because HUBLOT have not given me any details on the watch's functions. They did though, kindly send me some spec. along with this first official image and have told me further details will be forthcoming. Stay tuned . . .
